Take Off to the Great White North

We’re home after a fabulous weekend in the Great White North, with T and M as well as crazymumma and her wonderful family.

It was our first visit to their magnificent new home. The setting is gorgeous, and Cakes loved the house. It is full of stairs and nooks and crannies and cupboards. We loved the seventies red swag carpet--Cakes and I took turns steamrolling each other in it. There is a bar in the rec room with red lights under the counter. Groovy.

Cakes took a little while to get into the idea of playing in the snow:



She eventually came around though…for about half an hour.





McHusband, while re-packing the trunk, left Cakes’ suitcase full of toys on the garage floor.


Whaddya mean you forgot the toys!


Luckily, she found plenty of other amusements…

…buddhas…


…beers…



…remote-control rats…



…garbage…



Crazymumma’s sweet girls did an excellent job entertaining Cakes:



After the little girls went to bed, it was time for the big girls to play. We ate stinky cheese, and talked and talked and sipped a few beverages...



All I can say is, “ow”.

Can’t wait to do it again.

We WERE all a little rough around the edges this morning weren't we?
But it was all worth it, including the hideous drive.

The girls keep asking for a little sister...just like Cakes. So, to steer clear of that possibiltiy can we borrow her from time to time?

at first that last shot seemed not so excessive for a weekend of drinking. Then I recognised the tetra packs......

Garbage is always loads of fun! Thankfully Simon wasn't in that box or McHotty would have some 'splaining to do.

Your weekend sounds like a blast!

Cakes manages to look elegant in a snowsuit. The Boy looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Sounds like a rockin' time.

Slackstress: crazymum's husband's brother is married to my husband's sister. So, we're kinda sister-in-laws.
